At long last, The Church and New Media will hit the shelves this week! I’ll be writing more about it at the National Catholic Register on Friday, but I’m really excited about how it turned out. I just finished reading my contributor’s copy, and I was blown away at all the fascinating insights in this one little book. Even if you don’t have a particular interest in new media, I think you’ll enjoy reading this, because it’s an interesting and accessible examination of how our 2, 000-year-old religion is changing and growing as the result of new technology. You can find out more at the book’s website, or go get a copy at Amazon!
Things have been so crazy around here that I forgot to announce that Kate Wicker’s book is finally out. Hurray! I was honored to be asked to write the foreword for Weightless. It’s is a deeply personal book about Kate’s struggles with eating disorders, in which she helps other women learn to see themselves as beloved children of God rather than a number on a scale. Anyone who’s ever struggled with an eating disorder, or even felt a little too attached to food or her physical appearance, will find a lot of comfort and wisdom in this book. And you can check out Kate’s great blog as well!
My friend Elizabeth Esther is currently in Bolivia with a group of bloggers as part of a trip for World Vision. You can follow her posts at her blog, or follow all the World Vision bloggers’ posts here. The purpose of the trip is to try to find sponsors for more children who desperately need help, so please take a moment to look at the photos of some of the kids in need of sponsorship and prayerfully consider if you might be able to sponsor one. I have to admit, I’m sitting here with tears in my eyes after hearing about how World Vision has helped to prevent special needs children from being neglected and abandoned, which was common before they arrived. God bless them for the work they’re doing.
